In this study we used social network analysis of incel-related videos on YouTube to understand the recommendations, patterns, and dissemination of incel ideology on a popular multimedia platform, i.e., YouTube. Results revealed 12 distinct groups in the network (e.g., Female Hypergamy, Gynocentric Bias). Central videos in each group revealed the spread of ideological material on YouTube. Videos with the highest betweenness centrality scores were evaluated to map the pathways from groups with more innocuous video content to groups with more extremist incel-ideological content.
